Following a promising debut season with Nice, where he notched up six goals, Moffi surged into double digits in the current campaign, achieving the milestone in just 23 appearances in the French top flight.

However, it was Moffi’s penalty kick that stole the spotlight, reminiscent of his heroics at AFCON 2023, as he confidently dispatched his 50th Ligue 1 goal past Nantes goalkeeper Albane LaFont.
